Inspired by Lavender and Gray

Hello, Everyone and welcome to another Wednesday of inspiration from Heartfelt Creations! 

Today's card uses an exquisite dahlia image from the latest Heartfelt Creations release, Burst of Splendor.

 The flower is colored with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut out.  The leaves are stamped in Basic Gray with the open leaf image, overstamped with Versamark with the bold leaf image and then clear embossed.  Detailed directions can be found below or on the Heartfelt Creations blog where you can also see all of the beautiful inspiration by the rest of the design team!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!
